Great day. Very well run and organized. Street vendors were obnoxious but everything else was A+

We had a great time! The trip was both fun and informative. The guides were very helpful and friendly. I have told family and friends how great this trip was!
Excellent trip, first class tour guides who made our day stress free. Lunch was very good - we would recommend this day trip with no hesitation. Thank you!
One of the best excursions I have taken. The arrangements, guides and food were all brilliant. Very good value for money. I was a little concerned about how my 81-year-old father would cope, but he had no problems with the pace of the tour, he is active for his age.

We loved Morocco, especially with the guided tour. Excellent tour guides, great service, buses and boats in great condition. It was far better than expected.
We really enjoyed our trip to Morocco! Despite my husband's reservations to go with our small children, it turned out to be a great day! We got to stop and ride a camel before taking to the streets of Tangier and experiencing the local culture. They took us to a very nice shop, where we could peruse the local handicrafts hassle-free. We also had a wonderful lunch while listening to live Moroccan music.
We loved this trip! We were well looked after by our local guide.
Fantastic. But the tour guide was a bit rude and left us stranded at one point.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Morocco. Because we were there during the off season, the bus was not full and we didn't have to make many hotel stops to pick people up. The bus was comfortable and the ferry was very nice with a snack bar on it. Our guide was very good and we were met with another guide once we arrived in Morocco who specialized and taught at the University. The lunch was a nice experience but the food which was probably typical was not especially good but edible. The lunch was free as mentioned, but drinks were not. Towards the end of the tour, we stopped at a carpet place where they showed us how they make them and then we were left to buy one if we chose. I personally bought a rug, but for those who weren't interested in buying might have been bored. I could have used more shopping time, but that's because I am a shopper when it comes to buying local items. We also got to ride the camels which was fun. I would take this tour again and I would recommend it to others.
The tour was very well run. Be sure to be ready early as the bus was 10 minutes early.
The trip was enjoyable and very well planned. The lunch was very good.

Well organized and included lunch. The guide was professional and informative. Enjoyed the whole day in Morocco.
Any bad reviews of this trip are incorrect. Having just gone on May 10th, I can say the day was planned wonderfully. We were picked up not even five minutes from our hostel (we are students) and then took a coach all the way to Tarifa. Anyone complaining about stops, either stay closer or don't complain because it has to do with distance to southern-most tip of Spain. Our guide was amazing. Comments that caught our attention when booking this was that they gave too much time to shop, but in reality there was a rug demonstration along with a spice information session. These were both excellent, and we both ended up buying rugs for extremely cheap prices! Overall, trip was wonderful and would recommend it for the price. Take this journey and pray you get our guide.
What a tremendous experience of going to a little slice of Africa. We felt very safe, well fed at the lunch, and learned a lot about their culture and history. While the street vendors were pretty aggressive, it was still entertaining in itself, as we did not take it too personally. Both of our guides were really excellent, and we were picked up only a few hundred meters from our hotel.
Everything turned out according to plan. We were picked up at the exact time the tour company indicated. It was an excellent tour both en route and in Tangier. I recommend this tour and the ease of booking online. This tour is a must if you're in the area.
The trip to Tangier was wonderful, fascinating and very interesting. We had never been to Africa and this was a small glimpse, but very different. The tour was well organized, efficient and the driver and guides very good. We were picked up at our time share actually arrived early and had an interesting drive down the coast. The ferry was fun, transfers easy and the walk through the casbah and medina very interesting. The local guides were good, and one followed at the end making sure no one got lost, a real possibility in the narrow allies. The snake charmers were interesting, and the meal was good. They dropped us off right in front of our place on the way back. Altogether a great tour.
So glad we took this brief day trip to Morocco, well worth going, it is so exotic and a totally different experience. Our guide was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, spoke perfect English and had tons of patience! It was a somewhat rushed day but covered all the typical sights and sounds of an Arab world. Loved the people, the food, the merchants, the music, camel rides and snake charmers even! Wish we had more time to shop!
This is a great tour. There is no way that I could have seen as much if I had done it on my own.

I certainly couldn't have covered the area and places we visited any quicker nor would I have enjoyed what I did see had I tried doing this myself. It is quite apparent that the tour is geared to helping the area sales persons whether it be a restaurant, carpet and souvenir shops, the local snake charmer complete with flute to the camels and souk vendors. I would have been very disappointed had we missed any of what we saw. The tour guides were excellent. Have change with you and small bills for tipping but more so for buying. Lower bills can fetch a better price in bargaining. A most memorable tour and experience. Will have Viator in my bookmarks for sure. You also came through with flying colours with the Paris Hop on Hop off Bus tour as well.
We were put in a minivan because there were more people than the bus could accommodate. Unable to see any palaces from outside the minivan.
The bus showed up on time at our hotel. We were fortunate in that we were the last group to be picked up and the first to be dropped off in the evening. We stayed at the Marriott Playa Andaluza. The tour guide was very nice, well experienced and shared a wealth of information as well as kept us organized and on time. The ferry ride was nice (fast and clean). We were in business class which is a "private" front part of the ferry. Another tour guide met us in Morocco who was also very nice and experienced. We had a nice lunch and saw some nice sites in the Medina, including of course the camels and snake charmers. For me the negative was that we were taken to a store where they tried to sell us carpets, healing oils, medicine, leather goods, etc (could have done without that). The largest negative which has nothing to do with the tour is that you will be harassed by people trying to sell you something and they don't take "no" for an answer. They will harass you from the time you step off the ferry until you get back onto the ferry. While I'm glad I went, I would not return. Once again, this is not a negative comment about the tour. They provided everything they said they would and were very professional.
